This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
I love the way this author so warmly and fondly describes her childhood and her father. She clearly shows that children with non-Jewish parents can grow up to have firm Jewish identities.
I can certainly relate to her father’s journey to conversion: I converted 22 years after marrying my Jewish husband and after 15 years of being actively involved in raising my two children as Jews. It makes me feel like less of a “freak” to hear about other Jews by Choice who took decades to convert.
